New M-Track Plus MKII came with Waves and Cubase LE. I'm dying to try this out, as it's light years ahead of my current Flintstone rig. Problem: I want to use a Mac, mine are ancient, and even if I did go PC route, it's not much better; at least 10yrs old. My daughter recently bought a MacBook, and it's incredible- so is the price. So I'm trying to find one I can afford (read:used) and for the $ I can commit at the moment, it pushes things back out to like '07-ish. . I've wasted enough money to know that there's a sudden and steep drop off between a sensible compromise, and worthless piece of crap. I do not wish to add to the already large steamy pile of the latter I've accumulated over the years. It's really all I'll be using it for, I just don't know enough about the current/semi recent past Mac OS's vs. the demands these DAWs will place on a machine. If there's no way it can cut it, no matter how tweaked, than I'll forget it and keep saving. If can handle this type of burden seamlessly, then I need to move on the deal quickly. And I thank you... EDIT: if the answer is no for an '07-'09, where can I be safe? And specs too please. Not dream machine #'s, just comfortable, for a couple years out ideally.
